A Threat?

Is Najib issuing a threat? Saying in a press conference that the government will withdraw the fuel rebates if the people don't appreciate it. I think he really look stupid issuing such statements. The Star reported that he appeared to be annoyed. My guess is day by day, the Prime Minister-in-waiting seats gets hotter. I remember in the 90s the Deputy Prime Minister seat is the hottest and many DPM fell, started with Musa Hitam (now Tun), the late Ghaffar Baba (also Tun), and of course DSAI.

Maybe Najib should just apologise to the public. Remember the minerals and oil in the land belongs to the people, not the government. So he is rather childish for a DPM to make such statements.

The Star reported as follows :

Najib, who appeared to be a bit annoyed, said the people must understand that for every litre, the price was subsidised 30 sen.

He also said they have forgotten about the RM625 rebate given to owners with vehicles up to 2,000cc that was announced in June.

“The rebate, if translated, will cost between 35 sen and 40 sen a litre. If the people do not appreciate the rebates, it is better for us not issue any more in the future.

Yea, he really did sound childish making such a statement. He's not thinking for the people... sadly to say.
